The use that visual artists have made of popular media, such as television, has provided a point of critical interest over recent decades. Contemporary artists, Gilbert & George, followed the pace set by media-savvy artists, through their recent television appearance on the popular talk-show Friday Night with Jonathan Ross. Their appearance on prime-time TV raised a series of questions concerning gay visibility, mainstream media and the visual subterfuge deployed in contemporary art.
